Glad to hear you had a particularly great time here on your most recent visit -- thanks for letting me know! We've gotten some notes on our service before, and I've been trying to make sure we improve that, and based on this review it seems like it's working out, which is great news.

Canton house is usually a busy place. The food is fairly good except somewhat oily. They should devein their shrimp. They told me that was too much trouble. It was unappetizing to see the large black clumps of the engorged vein in my dum sum. If it is to much trouble deveining, then what else is to much trouble to... More

I'm glad to know that, for the most part, you enjoy your visits here, but I'm really sorry to hear that you've apparently been disappointed with the quality of our shrimp recently. Can you just let me know whether this was in the shrimp paste or in the big shrimp? Either way, I will look into how we can improve... More

I attended a wedding of a friend and the rehearsal dinner was at Canton House. The food was great and very tasty. It got served in a very organized manner. We had crab meat and corn soup, chicken with black bean sauce, green pepper steak, beef with mixed vegetables and house special fried rice. The staff was friendly and attentive... More

My wife and I have become regulars - and we drive almost an hour one-way just to eat there! I really enjoy dim sum, and they have three different carts that will come around with different types. They also have a wide variety of dishes, from the standards one would find in a typical "Chinese restaurant", to delicious Hot Pots,... More

We came here a few months ago and we came back to give another try today.. It doesn't change at all.. We would never come back! Bad service, took 45 mins to get the cart/food coming to our table.

Management response:

I know it's been a few months since you wrote this, but I wanted to apologize for the fact that apparently the service was very slow during your most recent visit. It would be extremely unusual for a customer to go un-helped for 45 minutes, no matter how busy we may have been at the time -- our servers know... More

This is authentic Canton restaurant. They have a wide selection of dim sun to choose from. This is a place to go with at least 6 people so you can share your dishes.

Good to hear you enjoy our dim sum! Authentic, delicious dim sum is what we're all about, so I just wanted to thank you for the compliments. I hope you'll come back soon so we can show you an even better time, though. I'd love to earn an even higher rating next time! Best, Cam Vuong, Owner More

Mediocre at best.... The dim sum are very bland and the meat inside is questionable. Also, the service was horrific. At first, the dim sum trays weren't really going around. Then when they began going around, they skipped a lot of tables and it was just hard to even order any food. When we were ready to leave, we sat... More

Enjoyed our trip to Buford Hwy with a stop at the Canton House for dim sum. Had a large variety. Servers were continually coming by with a large selection. We went early and left around noon on Saturday. As we were leaving, they were very busy. For us, it was a new and fun experience. We'll make the trip back... More

We went on Saturday afternoon. It was still busy. The dim sum was good even though we didn't know what we were eating. The staff explained each dish so we could get something we wanted to try

Boo-hoo...let me start off with saying that I have been to many places for Dim Sum. This is not where you want to go, for several reasons. The first time we went the place was rented out for a wedding (no problem). So we went on a different day, the dim sum was nice with a moderate amount of variety,... More
